Nets Capture Raptors to Force Deciding Game 7
(BROOKLYN) -- The Brooklyn Nets and Toronto Raptors have played many close games in this best-of-seven first-round series. This wasn't one of them.
Deron Williams had 23 points, five rebounds and four assists to lead the Nets past the Raptors 97-83, forcing a deciding Game 7, in a game the Nets never trailed.
Williams, who hadn't scored over 11 points in the team's last two losses, hit 8 of 16 from the field including 4 of 10 from 3-point land in the win.
"In the three games we've won, I've been really aggressive getting into the paint, making things happen, not only scoring the ball but making the extra pass," Williams said, "And so I know that's what my team needs me to do."
Although it almost looked like Williams wouldn't be able to. Williams fell to the floor early in the third quarter on a drive to the hoop. Williams limped around a little bit after the fall, but he continued to play.
Kevin Garnett, who only logged 12 minutes in Game 5, played 27 minutes in Game 6 and added 13 points, five rebounds and two blocks in the win.
DeMar DeRozan led all-scorers with 28 points in the loss.
Game 7 is Sunday in Toronto. Tip-off is still to be determined.
